Ben Affleck is not a stranger to the superhero movie—as many can remember (and most wish to forget), Affleck starred as Matt Murdock/ Daredevil in the atrocious 2003 film, Daredevil, a tonally-jarring mishmash of bad CGI, hammy writing, Colin Farrell’s overacting, an only a seemingly passing interest in remaining true to the tone of the Daredevil comic books. ...

If Terrence Malick's reputation as a misfit genius has proceeded him since his return to cinema in the 1990's, it was partly because he never talked to press and his films often took years to come out. So that he followed The Tree of Life so quickly with To The Wonder -- on top of the latter being a much more minor key...
